(Edlitor's Note-This is the first in
a series of stories spotlighting the
Western Conference Track and Field
Championships, scheduled for May 24
and 25 in Evanston, Illinois).
Michigan, with more balance
and depth in the sprints and dis-
tance events than it has shown
in several years, will attempt to
build up an advantage over Illinois
in the running events to offset the
Illini's strength in the field events
in the Western Conference Track
and Field Championships at
Evanston Thursday and Friday.
With Don McEwen doubling in
the mile and two mile the Wol-
verines hope to tally two fingers
in the distance runs. McEwen,
who won the two mile indoors, but
finished second behind Len Truex
in the mile, will not face particu-
larly strong competition in the
two mile.
McEWEN'S TIMES outdoors this
spring are nearly ten seconds bet-
ter than any of the other Big Ten
two-milers have been able to do.
Bob Dellinger of Indiana and War-
ren Druetzler of Michigan State
will provide McEwen with his
strongest challengers, while the
Wolverines' Bill Hickman is a good
possibility for a place among the
first five.
Ohio State's Truex will be cut
- to again stop McEwen's at-
tempted double in the mile.
Truex defeated McEwen by eight
yards indoors in tying the 4:10.4
Conference record.
Purdue's John Stayton :and the
Spartans' Drueetzler are expected
to follow McEwen and Truex to
the finish, along with Roy White-
man of Indiana. Aaron Gordon
and Doug Parks, are outside
chances to \ enhance Michigan's
point total wtih a fourth or fifth
in the mile.

* TRUEX WILL attempt to repeat

month. Both Wolverine men
h a v e improved considerable
since then, however, and now
clain the two best outdoor times
in the Conference this spring.
Michigan's weak spot in the
running events is expected to be
in the quarter, where Illinois has
the indoor champion in Cirilo
McSween and Spiders. The Wol-
verines hopes will probably rest
with Joe LaRue since Al Rankin
has not recovered from - his' leg
injury sufficiently enough to en-
able him'to offer a serious threat
to the Illinois men, Wisconsin's
LeRoy Collins, and Ohio State's
Gene Cole.
BILL KONRAD, with his 9.7 100
against the Spartans, has the
Conference's best outdoor time
this spring. Konrad will have to
defeat Illinois' 60-yard winner in-
doors, Joe Gonzales, Art Kurtz of
Northwestern, and the Buckeyes'
Cole in order to win the century.
Konrad will meet the same
sprinters in the 220, and in addi-
tion McSween. McSween and Cole
appear to be the fastest. Michi-
gan's other hopes in the sprints
rest with Dave Stinson and John
The Wolverines' weakness in the
440 will probably extend over to
the mile relay where Ohio State's
quartet has run a 3:16 mile.

his indoor double in running the
880. He will have to defeat both
George Jacobi and Chuck White-
aker, Michigan's one-two punch in
the half, however.
Illinois' Stacey Spiders cannot
be counted out of the running in
the half since he defeated both
Whiteaker and Jacobi in the
Michigan - Illinois - Southern

OSU Wins Midwest Regatta
As Michigan Tars Place Fifth

The Michigan Sailing Club,
Midwest champions for the past
three years, was just another team
at the Midwest Invitational Re-
gatta held last weekend at Ohio
The Buckeyes, host for the re-
gatta, sailed off with first place
honors and the title, while the
Wolverines had to be content with
a fifth.
GIL THORPE and Bob Allen
skippered the dinghies in the 'A'
division for the Wolverines with
Paul Paris and Carl Personke sail-
ing as crew. In the 'B' division,

Michigan had Don McVittie and
Red Oppenheimer as co-skippers.
Toledo took second place be-
hind the Buckeyes. Toledb has
been a big nemesis to the Wol-
verines all season, either taking
first or placing ahead of them
in every meet in which they
Purdue, the crew that took first
place in last week's eliminations
for the Columbus regatta, followed
Toledo in the final standings. The
Boilermakers, Toledo and Michi-
gan were the three schools that
qualified from this district in the
regional eliminations at Whitmore

OHIO WESLEYAN edged, the
Wolverines by the narrow margin
of two points to take fourth place.
The rest of the schools that com-
peted, in the order of their finish-
ing, were Northwestern, C a s e
Tech, Depauw, and Wisconsin.
The Midwestern sailors were
hindered by the weather, or rather
the lack of it over the two day
meet. Only an occasional spotty
breeze ruffled the waters of the
Sciota river, preventing any con-
sistent racing.
Ohio State and Toledo will rep-
resent the Midwest in the national
championships to be held this
summer at Boston.
